National Youth Arts Wales (NYAW) is looking for young people from across Wales to join the National Youth Theatre of Wales in 2011.
In the New Year, teams from NYTW will be travelling the length and breadth of Wales, scouting for some of Wales’ most talented young actors, designers, stage managers and technicians.
Application forms are available NOW and the deadline for completed applications is Monday 6 December 2010.
A series of workshop-auditions for the Youth Theatre (aimed at young people aged 16 – 21 years) are being arranged in locations throughout Wales during January - April 2011.
Membership of NYTW includes an intensive training and rehearsal period during the summer, plus the prospect of large-scale public performances in some of Wales’ most well-known venues.
